Food Pairings for Schramsberg Blanc de Blancs Sparkling Wine
Pours a bright and effervescent golden color with amble carbonation. Light on the nose with some green apples and lemons. The scents do not intesify much even as this warms a tad. Starts off with a nice tingly sensation of green apples and citrus. This stays constant throughout the entire tasting. On the very back end, there is some underlying vanilla cream flavor. This has a nice medium body with able acidity. Very refreshing.
The Schramsberg style of Blanc de Blancs is dry and crisp. Small lots of malolactic- and barrel-fermented wines are added for complexity. The wine is aged on the yeast lees in the bottle for over two years prior to disgorgement. With its vibrant, fruitful and crisp nature, this sparkling wine will maintain its freshness, structure and refined finish for many years, even decades following its initial release.
“Fruitful aromas of fresh lime and Granny Smith apple, accentuated by nuances of juicy pineapple and lemon grass, are complimented by notes of honeycomb and hazelnut from the years of aging en tirage. On the palate, the 2008 Blanc de Blancs enters crisp and tangy, unfolding with flavors of lime, pineapple and exotic tropical fruits. Delicious and layered flavors of lemon custard and fresh-from-the-oven brioche follows. The palate finishes with a delicate sweetness and a generous acidity that is long and quenching.” – Winemakers Keith Hock and Hugh Davies
